Members of Congregation Beth David gathered Wednesday at Mission Plaza in San Luis Obispo as the menorah was lit for the second evening of Hanukkah. The lighting will continue during the festival, which runs through Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Hanukkah, known as the Jewish Festival of Lights, is an eight-day commemoration of the rededication of the Temple by the Maccabees after their victory over Syrian forces.
